SEASON FIVE

What do machine learning, data analytics, and freight visibility all have in common? They're all highlighted in this special season, featuring some of the most dynamic RoadSigns guests yet. How will machine learning enhance transportation software? How can fleets navigate the path ahead for data analytics and ELDs? These questions and more are all answered in Season Five of RoadSigns.

SEASON FOUR

"Is everything moving according to plan?" Supply chain managers in charge of procuring, shipping, storing, and managing those items find themselves fighting against the clock - constantly. Items deteriorate. Items are exposed to risk. Technologies purport to help manage both inventory and transit, help respond to customers, help increase transparency. This season of Road Signs focuses on our ability to see freight from all points along the supply chain.

RS11-13

SEASON THREE

This season, RoadSigns turns to the business side of commercial freight. Its mission: to understand more about the microeconomic conditions that pressure bottom lines and learn more about how top decision makers and creative entrepreneurs alleviate those pressures and find new ways to allocate some very scarce resources (like fuel and capacity).

SEASON INTERCESSION

Policy and Donald Trump. In this season of RoadSigns, we visit Capitol Hill to see what Congress is doing for infrastructure, mean while in California the first real electric ecosystem is established. Guest host Dan Ronan wonders, could what's happening at the ports of Southern California have consequences for the way the rest of the nations experiences an electric future?

How are Trucking Companies Weathering the Coronavirus Storm?

There is no playbook for navigating the COVID-19 crisis. Yet, open communication and access to a virtual work place can ease the transition to a remote environment and help ensure that essential freight arrives on time. But what about those who can't work from home? What about the front line drivers? How can trucking companies adjust their operations to ensure that essential freight keeps moving while protecting their workers?

How Is Supply Chain Visibility Easing Logistics Challenges Amid the Covid-19 Crisis?

COVID-19 has been a wake-up call to many businesses and their ability to mobilize rapidly, set up crisis management mechanisms, and build the supply chain resilience that will see them through to the other side. So, what can the supply chain do when disaster strikes? How can fleets, shippers, and 3PLs better prepare for volatile freight demand?

How are Test Drivers Paving the Way for Truck Platooning?

Two trucks travel together in a tight formation on the highway, linked by connected vehicle technology. When the driver of the lead truck brakes, the following truck automatically follows suit n this episode, host Seth Clevenger speaks with Mike Perkins and Derrick Loo, professional test drivers at Peloton, one of the companies at the forefront of developing truck platooning systems.

RS25: ROADSIGNS ROUNDABOUT: Automated Trucking Part II

Over the last few years, we've seen a great deal of investment in self-driving technology for commercial trucks. But what about trucking automation designed to support the driver rather than replace the driver? In past episodes, TuSimple Chief Product Officer Chuck Price and Pronto.ai co-founder and COO Ognen Stojanovski presented RoadSigns listeners with competing visions for automated trucks. Join us for Part II of our investigation of autonomous trucking, and put the machine-to-driver reality in the clearest view.

RS28: WHAT CAN PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS REVEAL ABOUT DRIVER SAFETY?

Driver safety is paramount for trucking companies, but determining which drivers are most likely to be involved in a crash is no simple task. As it taps into a variety of data sources, predictive analytics software helps to reduce the guesswork. What will this technology reveal? How will it help us mine data and discover behavior patterns in drivers? To get answers, Seth Clevenger turns to the data guys. In this episode, he talks with Hayden Cardiff, CEO of Idelic, and Ashim Bose, chief data scientist at Omnitracs.
